Found this montage of career highlights for Nakajima: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fD_3zgKA-UE

It's mostly his offense, but he clearly displays the ability to use the entire field and hits for power to all of it (although he's mostly a pull-hitter when it comes to power). Some of the highlights include a big hit off Roy Oswalt in the WBC at Dodger Stadium, a diving play into the first row seats at Fenway Park during the WBC, and a few walk-off jacks toward the end.

He also seems to be slightly more jovial and smiling than most of the stoic Japanese players who've emerged in MLB. I'm excited about the possibility of the A's signing him now. Could be this year's Cespedes?

That catch wasn't in Fenway. Baseball in Boston in early March? I don't think so.

Well it looked like Fenway, judging by the endless sea of excited white people in preppy clothes at a baseball game.

Fenway doesn't have a cylcone or clear fence along the leftfield foul line stands

Well then it wasn't fr!ggin Fenway. Regardless, he made a nice play diving into the stands. Hopefully he can make some sweet plays like that in the enormous foul territory that is O.co
